Around the Horn: Speed, Bad Acid, Baseball Haters, and Blog Birthdays

By Pauly

Still smack in the middle of a big work project. A couple of more days and I'm done. I somehow found some time to crank out some fodder over here. In case you missed this past week's action on the Tao...
Hey Jude - Wilson Pickett and Diane Allman - Insane guitar solo by Duane Allman at the end of Wilson Pickett's cover of this highly popular Beatles song.

Speed Men - The latest episode of Mad Men was jacked up on speed. And other things. I also candidly spoke about what it was like for having a prescription to Adderall and what I don't take it anymore.

Gimme Shelter (Documentary Film) - Don't eat the brown acid... the brown acid is BAD! This is the full version of the documentary about the Rolling Stones and their attempt to put on a free concert, which turned out to be an utter disaster at Altamont.

Bad Backs, Bad Manners, and I Know Why You Hate Baseball - Tough week with a bad back. I also figured out why some people hate baseball... it stems from a bad childhood.

2023: Pro Soccer, Green Zones, Internet Speakeasy, and Cat TV -  A glimpse into the future. It's not pretty with rampant crime and limited internet access, but there's plenty of soccer and 24/7 TV channels with nothing except cats.

Get Paid to Be Dick on Facebook - I envy people with jobs that allow them to fart around on social media all day... every day... all the fucking time. Plus, the rise of the internet troll.

Happy 11 - The Tao of Pauly turned 11 yesterday. What a long strange trip it's been, eh?

I had a fairly active week on Coventry Music, and we posted a new mix...
Mad Men and Daft Punk  - Mashup with Kenny Cosgrove and the new Daft Punk album.

Video: Trey Anastasio Band at the Hangout Festival - 90 mins of Big Red.

Michael Cain, BITCH! Mix - Delicious mix of funk, reggae, punk, hip-hop, rock n' roll, and surf guitar.

RIP Ray Manzarek and People Are Strange (Documentary) - The Doors keyboardist passed away and I posted a good doc about The Doors.

Here's a few things I posted elsewhere:
Bronx Bums Report 5/19/13: Little Bronxowski Overachievers  [Ocelot Sports] - My weekly column about the Yankees, who are competing for the top spot in the AL East despite a rash of injuries.

ABA: Red, White, and Blue Balls [Ocelot Sports] - A book review about the oral history of the old ABA pro basketball league that took flight in the 1970s.

Graham Hancock on Joe Rogan [Tao of Fear] - Great interview on Joe Rogan's podcast with the author of Fingerprints of the Gods.

Writing music over the past week included...
Iron Man by Eric Dolphy
Sextant by Herbie Hancock
